    Thermal Properties of Nitrogen-Rich Ca-α-Sialons2009In: Journal of the European Ceramic Society, ISSN 0955-2219, E-ISSN 1873-619X, Vol. 29, no 16, p. 3409-3417Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Nitrogen-rich Ca-α-Sialon (CaxSi12−2xAl2xN16 with x = 0.2, 0.4, and 0.8, 1.2 and 1.6) ceramics were prepared from the mixtures of Si3N4, AlN and CaH2 powders in a hot press at 1800 °C using a pressure of 35 MPa and a holding time of 4 h, and then were investigated with respect to reaction mechanism, phase stability and oxidation resistance. In addition the sample with x = 1.6 was prepared in the temperature range 600–1800 °C using a pressure of 35 MPa and a holding time of 2 h. The α-Sialon phase was first observed at 1400 °C but the α-Si3N4 and AlN phases were still present at 1700 °C. Phase pure Ca-α-Sialon ceramics could not be obtained until the sintering temperature reached 1800 °C. The phase pure nitrogen-rich Ca-α-Sialon exhibited no phase transformation in the temperature range 1400–1600 °C. In general, mixed α/β-Sialon showed better oxidation resistance than pure α-Sialon in the low temperature range (1250–1325 °C), while α-Sialons with compositions located at α/β-Sialon border-line showed significant weight gains over the entire temperature range tested (1250–1400 °C). The phases formed upon oxidation were characterized by X-ray, SEM and TEM studies.

    Sialon Ceramics Prepared by Using CaH2 as a Sintering Additive2008In: Journal of the American Ceramic Society, ISSN 0002-7820, Vol. 91, no 9, p. 2997-3004Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In developing elongated a-sialon grains, a nitrogen-rich liquidphase sintering method was introduced by using CaH2 as asintering aid, so as to vary the N/O ratio of the liquid phaseformed in the sintering process while keeping the Si/Al ratiosconstant. With increasing addition the phase contents changedfrom single b-sialon to dual b/a-sialons and to single Ca-a-sialon.At low N/O ratios the microstructures contained mainlyequiaxed b-sialon grains, and at high N/O ratios well facetedelongated Ca-a-sialon grains. The improved toughness(KIC57.8 MPa .m1/2) and hardness (HV10517.5 GPa) propertiescan be attributed to the formation of interlocked microstructures.High-temperature compressive deformation testsindicated that the deformation onset temperature is determinedmainly by the Si/Al and N/O ratios, whereas the deformationrate is affected by the microstructure, i.e., the morphology andamounts of elongated a-sialon grains and residual glass phase,especially for the sialons with low N/O ratios.

    High-resolution electron microscopy of a Sr-containing sialon polytypoid phase1999In: Journal of the European Ceramic Society, ISSN 0955-2219, E-ISSN 1873-619X, Vol. 19, p. 2723-2730Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    A new type of Sr-containing sialon polytypoid phase with the structural formula SrSi10-xAl18+xN32-xOx (x approximate to l) has been found in the Sr-Si-Al-O-N system. The phase was characterised by X-ray powder diffraction (XRPD), and its structure was investigated by electron diffraction (ED) and high resolution electron microscopy (HREM). It is considerably disordered, but the average structure has a rhombohedral unit cell with a=5.335(5)approximate to root 3.a(AIN) and c= 79.1(1)Angstrom approximate to 30.c(AIN). The Sr atoms ave located in layers M-Sr-M, M=(Si/Al), at the origin of the unit cell with 12 X= (O,N) atoms around it, at distances of similar to 3 Angstrom, forming a cubo-octahedron. The X atoms that form a hexagon around the Sr atom in the ab plane are corner shared by M = (Si/Al) tetrahedra with opposite polarity in adjacent layers in which 2/3 of the tetrahedra are occupied. The M-Sr-M layers alternate with normally eight-layer-thick AIN type blocks, although the thickness of these blocks frequently varies. The structural model obtained from the HREM images includes a polarity reversal of the tetrahedra in the AIN blocks, similar to that proposed to occur in Si-Al-O-N polytypoid phases. The model with one Sr layer and 10 M = (Si,Al) layers per 1/3 of the repeat unit agrees with the composition of the phase and experimental HREM images.

    Structure and magnetic susceptibility of MnNb3O61999In: Solid State Sciences, ISSN 1293-2558, E-ISSN 1873-3085, Vol. 1, p. 567-575Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The mixed valence state niobium compound MnNb3O6 was found while studying phase formations in the system MnO-Nb2O5-NbO. It is isostructural with AxNb3O6, x ≤ 1 and A = Na, Ca. Single crystals were obtained by heating MnC2O4 · 2H2O and Nb2O5 in a flow of H2 at 1300 °C. Monophasic samples were also prepared by heating stoichiometric mixtures of MnO, Nb2O5 and Nb in niobium ampoules under Ar(g) at 1100 °C. The crystal structure of MnNb3O6 (Immm, Z = 4, a = 7.1057(5), b = 10.1420(6), c = 6.5341(5) Å) was refined, using singlecrystal MoKα X-ray diffraction data, to a weighted R value of 0.018 for 329 unique reflections. The structure contains undulating layers of NbO6 octahedra of the type α2[NbO6/2]in the ac-plane, with the octahedra sharing edges along [001]and corners along [100]. Between the layers there are columns along [001]of edge-sharing square MnO8 prisms alternating with columns containing Nb2O8 clusters with an Nb-Nb distance of 2.6163(5) Å. The magnetic susceptibility shows a Curie-Weiss behaviour: χM = C/(T+θ) with θ ≈ −22 K and μeff = 6.0(1) μB for T ≥ ca. 35 K, with a small deviation from this dependence at lower temperatures, indicating Mn2+ ions with localised magnetic moments and antiferromagnetic interactions.

    Nitrogenrich La-Si-Al-O-N oxynitride glass structures probed by solid state NMR2008In: Journal of Non-Crystalline Solids, ISSN 0022-3093, E-ISSN 1873-4812, Vol. 354, no 1, p. 49-60Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    We investigate the local structures of oxynitride La–Si–(Al)–O–N glasses by 29Si and 27Al magic-angle spinning (MAS) solid state Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR). The glasses studied span an unprecedented range of compositions, up to >50 at.% lanthanum and nitrogen out of the cations and anions, respectively, and achievable through a recently introduced glass preparation route. Transmission as well as scanning electron microscopy verified homogeneous samples over length-scales down to 20 nm. As the nitrogen content of the glasses increased, 29Si NMR evidenced a progressive formation of Si–N bonds, with SiO2N2 tetrahedra dominating in the nitrogen-rich glass networks. In the oxygen-rich end of the series, aluminum is predominantly present in tetrahedral coordination as AlO4, whereas the glasses with highest nitrogen contents have a major fraction of AlO3N structural units. Trends in isotropic 29Si and 27Al chemical shifts and 27Al quadrupolar couplings are compared with results of La–Si–Al–O glasses and are discussed in relation to the glass compositions and their proposed structures.

    High-Temperature Mechanical Spectroscopy of Nitrogen-Rich Ca-alpha-SiAlON Ceramics2011In: Journal of The American Ceramic Society, ISSN 0002-7820, E-ISSN 1551-2916, Vol. 94, no 5, p. 1536-1545Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Nitrogen-rich Ca-alpha-SiAlON ceramics made with different starting powder compositions have been studied by high-temperature mechanical spectroscopy in parallel with compressive deformation in a spark plasma sintering equipment. The mechanical loss spectra measured upon heating show a relaxation peak at about 1150 K and a high-temperature exponential background at higher temperatures (> 1400 K), which are attributed to the alpha-relaxation in the glassy phase and to grain-boundary sliding, respectively. A theoretical interpretation of the results shows that the peak position is mainly a function of glass viscosity. The amplitude of the peak is not only affected by the glassy phase quantity but also depends on the restoring force due to grain elasticity. Therefore, despite a higher amount of glassy phase specimens containing elongated grains may show a lower peak. The amplitude of the internal friction peak corresponding to alpha-relaxation can be used to predict the compression creep of silicon-nitride-based ceramics.

    Elastic properties and surface damage resistance of nitrogen-rich (Ca,Sr)-Si-O-N glasses2010In: Journal of Non-Crystalline Solids, ISSN 0022-3093, E-ISSN 1873-4812, Vol. 356, no 41-42, p. 2120-2126Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Ca and Sr-based oxynitride glasses with very high nitrogen content have been synthesized using metal hydrides as primary precursors. Values of Young's modulus, shear modulus, bulk modulus and Poisson's ratio were determined by means of ultrasonic echography. Vickers micro-indentation has been used to characterize hardness and indentation fracture toughness behaviour. Elastic moduli were found to increase linearly with nitrogen content, with the highest value of Young's modulus at 135 GPa, for a Ca-glass with 58 e/o of nitrogen. The Sr-glasses exhibit lower elastic moduli than Ca glasses. Poisson's ratio, hardness, indentation fracture toughness, crack initiation load and surface damage resistance were found to increase with increasing nitrogen content for both glass series.

    Abstract [en]

    The title compound, tricalcium oxynitride silicate, with composition Ca(3-x)Si(2)N(2-2x)O(4+2x) (x similar or equal to 0.12), is a perovskite-related calcium oxynitrido silicate containing isolated oxynitrido silicate 12-rings. The N atoms are statistically disordered with O atoms (occupancy ratio N:O = 0.88:0.12) and occupy the bridging positions in the 12 ring oxynitrido silicate anion, while the remaining O atoms are located at the terminal positions of the Si(O,N)(4) tetrahedra. The majority of the Ca(2+) cations fill the channels along [100] in the packing of the 12-ring anions. The rest of these cations are located at several positions, with partial occupancy, in channels along the body diagonals.

    Formation and properties of nitrogen-rich strontium silicon oxynitride glasses2009In: Journal of Materials Science, ISSN 0022-2461, E-ISSN 1573-4803, Vol. 44, no 2, p. 664-670Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Glass formation in the system Sr–Si–O–N was investigated and properties of obtained glasses evaluated. The glass-forming region was determined for glasses prepared by melting mixtures of Sr metal, SiO2 and Si3N4 powders in Nb crucibles at 1600–1750 °C in nitrogen atmosphere using a radio frequency furnace. The glasses were found to be homogenous, translucent gray to opaque black, and to contain high contents of N (up to 45 e/o) and Sr (up to 36 e/o). The glass transition temperature (790–973 °C), density (2.99–4.07 g/cm3), microhardness (8.10–10.50 GPa), and refractive index (1.65–1.93) are strongly correlated with the amounts of Sr and N. The properties are compared with findings in other oxynitride silicate glass systems.

    Hardness and refractive index of Ca–Si–O–N glasses2009In: Journal of Non-Crystalline Solids, ISSN 0022-3093, E-ISSN 1873-4812, Vol. 355, no 4-5, p. 301-304Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Vickers hardness and refractive index was determined for Ca–Si–O–N glasses with 14.6–58 e/o N and 19–42 e/o Ca. By applying slow cooling rates, transparent glasses were obtained for compositions near Ca9.94Si10O17.73N8.14, while the majority of the glasses were opaque due to small inclusions of elemental Si and/or Ca-silicide. Determined glass densities varied between 2.80 and 3.25 g/cm3. Hardness was found to vary from 7.3 to 10.1 GPa at a load of 500 g and, respectively increase and decrease linearly with N and Ca content. The refractive index was found to increase linearly with N content from 1.62 to 1.95 and showed no significant dependence on Ca content.

    Properties of high nitrogen content mixed alkali-earth oxynitride glasses: (AExCa1-x)1.2(1)SiO1.9(1)N0.86(6), AE = Mg, Sr, Ba.2009In: Journal of Non-Crystalline Solids, ISSN 0022-3093, E-ISSN 1873-4812, Vol. 355, no 22-23, p. 1259-1263Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Mixed alkali earth element containing high nitrogen content oxynitride glasses (Ca1−xAEx)1.2(1)SiO1.9(1)N0.86(6), with AE = Mg, Sr, Ba, x ≤ 0.30 for Mg and x ≤ 0.46 for Sr and Ba, and nominally constant (Ca/AE):Si:O:N ratios were prepared in order to investigate the compositional dependencies of physical properties on alkali earth element composition. The glasses were prepared by melting mixtures of AEH2, CaH2, SiO2 and Si3N4 powders in nitrogen atmosphere at 1600–1700 °C and characterized by X-ray powder diffraction and scanning and transmission electron microscopy. Cation and anion glass compositions were determined by respectively energy dispersive X-ray analysis and combustion analysis. The determined physical properties were density, glass transition temperature, Vickers hardness, and refractive index. The physical properties were found to vary linearly with the degree of substitution of Ca by the AE elements. The density of the glasses increases substantially upon substitution by Sr and Ba, up to 3.99 g/cm3. Glass transition temperatures are found to be higher for Mg and Sr substituted glasses, ca. 900 °C, in comparison with Ba substituted glasses, ca. 850 °C. The hardness increases upon substitution by Mg, up to 12.2 GPa at x = 0.46, and decreases upon substitution by Sr and Ba. The refractive index increases upon substitution by Sr and Ba, up to 1.97 for Ba at x = 0.46, and decreases upon substitution by Mg. The transparency of the glasses was found to increase upon increasing substitution by Mg and completely transparent glasses were obtained for x = 0.24.

    Spark plasma sintering of B4C ceramics: The effects of milling medium and TiB2 addition2012In: International journal of refractory metals and hard materials, ISSN 0263-4368, Vol. 30, no 1, p. 139-144Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Boron carbide (B4C) ceramics, with a relative density up to 98.4% and limited grain growth, were prepared at 1600-1800 degrees C by spark plasma sintering (SPS) technique. The effects of powder milling medium (water and 2-propanol) on the powders' surface characteristics and TiB2 addition on the sintering densification were investigated. The ball milling processing of B4C powders in water can promote the sintering of B4C ceramics. A B2O3 layer on B4C particle surface is concluded to promote the densification of the B4C ceramics at an early sintering stage. This B2O3 layer, which normally inhibits the densification process at the final stage of the sintering, can be reduced through reaction with TiB2 particles, resulting in further densification of the B4C ceramics.

    Low temperature densification of B4C ceramics with CaF2/Y2O3 additives2012In: International journal of refractory metals & hard materials, ISSN 0958-0611, E-ISSN 2213-3917, Vol. 35, p. 311-314Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This study deals with low temperature densification of boron carbide (B4C) ceramics with combined employment of CaF2/Y2O3 sintering additive and Spark Plasma Sintering (SPS) technique. It demonstrates that a small amount addition of CaF2/Y2O3 has strong effect on the densification of B4C ceramics. With 0.5-1 wt.% CaF2/Y2O3 addition, nearly full-densification up to 99.1% of B4C ceramics can be attained at a temperature as low as 1700-1750 degrees C.
